Outlook 2000 when using the find feature, it only finds emails offline.

I have Windows XP, use Exchange Server 2003, and have Outlook 2000 client installed in my computer. When I have my e-mail open, i usually right click and hit FIND similar e-mails or I want to find by subject or whatever other criteria.
The problem is I see the e-mails are there but it doesn' find them.
I have also tried to find emails or per sender and I check to see if all sub-folders are checked, but they are not.

Please help, any ideas?

Hi salsalazar,
When the find window opens, verify the folders that Outlook is searching through. You may need to browse to select other folders.
Also, if you often need to search, I recommend installation of Lookout software at http://www.lookoutsoft.com/Lookout/download.html
